I'm missing that too cool smiley Am doing that all the time with windows, any windows of all programs. Got used to tabs only a few months ago and miss that, but haven't frankly searched for it very hard yet. Anyone know if it's possible...?

EDIT:
Ooops.... Thinking about it a minute longer, it dawns on me: There's the feature "Previously selected tab"! It's there when right-clicking a tab name, and can also be accessed by a hotkey (AltGr+TAB). Not very convenient...

Alas, that command can only jump back exactly 1 time. When using it again, it jumps forward again ;-P
But well, better than nothing. There's a hotkey combination, but on my laptop here toolbar buttons are easier. I'm going to put it on one. If anyone else is interested, the button command is:
ID_TAB_LAST|Prev

By the way, not everyone is aware yet, but tabs can be sorted by dragging them around. Sometimes that helps too smiling smiley

Tabs can't be minimized, but you can uncoment in toolbar.cfg file of your selected skin "Next tab" and "Previus tab" toolbar buttons, if this is that you like it.
Tab/&Window Buttons{

#	Prev{
#	%ifplugin tabs
#	ID_TAB_PREV|Prev
#	Previous Tab. Right-click for more options.
#	%else
#	ID_WINDOW_PREV|Prev
#	Previous Window. Right-click for more options.
#	%endif
#	layerwindowhot.bmp[0]
#	layerwindowcold.bmp[0]
#	}

#	Next{
#	%ifplugin tabs
#	ID_TAB_NEXT|Next
#	Next Tab. Right-click for more options.
#	%else
#	ID_WINDOW_NEXT|Next
#	Next Window. Right-click for more options.
#	%endif
#	layerwindowhot.bmp[1]
#	layerwindowcold.bmp[1]
#	}

#	-

But I can't understand why you like minimize a tab, instead change the focus to other tab, the result is same.

Well, the problem occurs if you have (too) many tabs open, and lose a little overview ;-) If you're reading a tab somewhere in the middle of the tab bar, among two dozend others, then open a few links in background, then go read those last tabs, and then - uhm, where was again that tab from which I opened those links....? *scratchhead* grinning smiley
Clicking "previous" and "next" only jumps one by one along the tab bar line, meaning to the closest neighbor, not the one you last viewed.

i think this could be done with a macro to add first tab and last tab in the tab menu.

there's also "previously selected tab" in the menu which takes you directly to the last viewed tab

Yeah I mentioned that above, but that takes you only 1 step back, you can't go to the earlier ones...

It's all about history!
I never found much sense in going forward/previous in the order the tabs are lined up. For this, one can just use the mouse. The thing that's more interesting, is to do it in chronological order, which can be quite chaotic regarding the linear line-up. A bit difficult to describe...

And perhaps doing this just by mimicking the "windows-minimize" behaviour: simple clicking the active tab lets it "minimize" and reveals the one used right before. "Minimizing" that one shows the yet earlier one, and so on.

No idea if something like that would be trivial or difficult...
Ah yes, and what I'd also really like: an additional pref option, when double-clicking a tab, to reload it cool smiley Usually I do it by mouse-gestures, but sometimes that "chokes" a bit ;-)
